HOW CAN AMERICANS STAND WITH ISRAEL?
Join the campaign to move the US Embassy
from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, Israel's capital for 3,000 years
TEL AVIV IS NOT THE CAPITAL OF ISRAEL.
IF YOU HAVEN'T PARTICIPATED YET, PLEASE DO SO TODAY!!!
Urge your Senators and Congressmen to sign S. 1622 and H.R. 1006. This recent Legislation will finally implement the Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995 - passed overwhelmingly by Congress 17 years ago. To date, Senate bill 1622 has 5 co-sponsors and House bill 1006 has 59 co-sponsors.
UCI Special request:
Join the campaign to move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem NOW!!! Let's offer Israel more than mere lip service. It's about time that the wishes of the American people were honored as expressed by our U.S. Congress in their legislative bills. Please use your zip code to automatically send the sample letter below to your Senators and Representatives by
SAMPLE LETTER: Your letter will read as follows, unless you change the wording.
Dear Senator or Representative,
The public needs to know that you stand with Israel during these difficult times.
Please sign the appropriate Senate bill 1622 or House Resolution 1006 to recognize Jerusalem as the undivided Capital of the State of Israel and to move the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
Since President Obama has recently exercised the waiver to defer action for another six months, until November 30, 2012, it is important that you add your name as co-sponsor of the appropriate bill (depending on whether you are a Senator or a Representative)that will implement the intent of the Jerusalem Embassy Act passed overwhelmingly by Congress in 1995. As you know, this Act authorized the move of our US embassy to Jerusalem, which has been Israel's capital for 3,000 years.
Your stand with Israel as she faces the growing nuclear threat from Iran will be noted by your constituents who recognize Israel's vital role in the war on terror. By co-sponsoring the bill you will eliminate another Presidential waiver preventing implementation of the Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995. Congress can finally fulfill the will of the American people, denied and over-ridden for far too long.
(Both bills "amend the Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995 to eliminate the President's authority to waive certain funding limitations for Department of State acquisition and maintenance of buildings abroad until the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem has officially opened.")
Thank you for your prompt attention to this very urgent request.
